Spring has sprung, which means summer is right around the corner! You may have scheduled your air conditioner tune-up, but what about maintenance for your heat pump? Most people do not realize that heat pumps work like air conditioners in the summer, by keeping your home cool. The refrigerant in heat pumps absorbs heat, which decreases the overall temperature that circulates throughout your home. However, in the winter, heat pumps absorb heat and disperse it to all areas in your home. So don’t forget to add heat pump maintenance to your spring cleaning checklist!
In order for a heat pump to work, it must be turned to heat mode in the winter and cool mode in the summer. Remember to switch your thermostat from heat mode to cool mode once those warm temperature kick in! It is also important to set your thermostat to the highest temperature you will be comfortable at. This will help you save money while increasing the energy efficiency and the longevity of your heat pump.
